Baldwin's 'Jealousy' Played Havoc With Basinger's Career

Hollywood beauty KIM BASINGER's torment at the hands of "jealous" former husband ALEC BALDWIN quashed her potential acting talent.

The 50-year-old actress - who suffered from agoraphobia (fear of open spaces) soon after marrying Baldwin in 1993 - experienced a lull in her Hollywood career in the mid-nineties before making an OSCAR-winning comeback in 1997's LA CONFIDENTIAL.

And model agency founder and close friend EILEEN FORD blames Baldwin's domineering ways for disrupting Basinger's movie ambitions.

She says, "He dragged her down years with his jealousy. Their marriage prevented her making the most of her talent.

"She was such a sweet girl. She read the Bible at bedtime and rarely went out to functions. Marrying Baldwin was a mistake."

The couple, who have one child, divorced in 2002.
